Mental health isn't hidden any more. It's on the front pages. The political agenda. For millions of us, it's something to be honest about – not ashamed of. We've all been a part of that transformation. Next week, we're continuing the fight that got us here. Are you joining us?
"I didn’t have hours of cuddles or skin-to-skin to add to our bond. I’d needed help to do the most basic of things since day one and it all caught up with me." Heather blogs about her traumatic birth experience and how it has shaped her mental health > bit.ly/3w59C1E
Did you know we have a garden at this year's @The_RHS #ChelseaFlowerShow. It's called The Mind Garden and it's been created by @AndySturgeon - it's designed to be a sanctuary where people can come together to share experiences and advice. We can't wait to show you more!
This #NationalGardeningWeek we've got some ideas to help you feel the benefits of gardening for your mental health, even without a garden: 🌱Help a friend with their garden. 🌱Join a community garden 🌱Or your local gardening club. 🌱Go all in and join an allotment waiting list.
Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week! We've got some exciting stuff to share with you, but we're keeping quiet on that until Monday 🤫 For a sneaky peak, visitmind.org.uk/mhaw9 #MHAWWn
It’s natural to experience a range of emotions after having a baby. But if how you’re feeling is affecting your everyday life, it’s important to get the right support. Speaking to your health visitor or GP is a good place to start. For more info 👇mind.org.uk/information-su…J (7/7)
Be kind to yourself. Having a new baby can make it difficult to keep up with daily tasks. This can feel frustrating and overwhelming. Try to take things slowly, and not to put too much pressure on yourself. (6/7)
When you have a new baby, it can feel like you have no time to yourself. But even a few minutes doing something that makes you feel good can make a big difference to your wellbeing. (5/7)
It’s not always possible to be active with a new baby, especially if you’re recovering from birth. But if you can, activities like going for a walk or doing some gentle stretching can help boost your mood. (4/7)
Remember that it’s okay to ask for help from people around you. This could be getting a family member to look after the baby for an hour while you catch up on sleep. Or getting help with household chores. (3/7)
Being a new parent can feel isolating. But talking to other parents, and finding that you share similar feelings and experiences, can help you feel less alone. Local baby groups and online communities are a good place to start. Find out more > mind.org.uk/information-su… (2/7)
Having a baby can affect your mental health in lots of ways. That's why it's so important to look after your wellbeing. This thread has some tips that might help 👇#MaternalMHmatterss (1/7)
“Call me a glutton for punishment, but I have decided to run 7 marathons in 7 days for Mind.” Carl blogs about why he has set himself the ultimate endurance test and how running has boosted his mental health > bit.ly/3F65WRh
Too often, we see Black people villainised and punished by systems that should protect them. This young person was being treated in a mental health hospital. He ended up in an immigration centre. He needed care not punishment. This is totally unacceptable. theguardian.com/world/2022/apr…
“Jasper was able to run off lead in designated dog parks for dogs who suffer with anxiety.” In #NationalPetMonth Rosie blogs about how rescue dogs have helped her with mental health problems – and she has done the same for them > bit.ly/38CdnTS
We have lots more info on exam stress, including some coping tips 👇 (6/6)mind.org.uk/information-su…t
Remember you can only do your best, and that’s enough 💙 (5/6)m
Stress can also make existing mental health problems feel harder to cope with. If you have a mental health problem that counts as a disability, you may also be entitled to something called reasonable adjustments. If you're not sure what's available, ask a trusted adult. (4/6)
Exam stress can be more than feeling nervous on the day of an exam. It can also be how you feel building up to exams, during exams and when waiting for results. You might feel especially worried because of changes to exams and assessments since the start of the pandemic. (3/6)
Lots of us know what it's like to feel stressed, but it can feel different for you than for someone else. It can also depend on what might be causing it. We're all different, and that's ok. (2/6)
🧵Exam season is nearly here. If you're struggling to cope, you're not alone. Exams can come with a lot of pressure and make us feel really stressed. When feelings of stress become too much to manage, this can affect our mental health and wellbeing. (1/6)v
